So many of us have garmins or similar GPS watches. So when racing I'm sure most of us use them, so what if in this thread you put a link to your GPS recorded race. We could do it in month format and then under the month put down the race. The reason for this is obvious to me, most likely the same race will be on again next year and if it's your first time doing it, you could come on to this thread, search under month and then pick your desired race which will give you the course profile including start and finish. I recently went to a Bohermeen 5k and was quite lucky to find it.

Seems like a top notch idea as far as I can see. Not sure how much I can add to the list, I'll have a look through the library now....

Excellent idea, as usual!

Would suit the Biki better maybe, we need Robin back to sort that stuff out, how dare he put boozing in a tent ahead of our needs!

I could have put the Conn Ultra route up if my stupid battery in my stupid Garmin hadn't gone(OK it was mostly my fault for not flicking the switch when I was plugging it into the charger the night before)

Good idea though Woddle, people are always asking what routes are etc anyway so keeping them all together will be good.

Top idea Mr Woddle - however some of us are technically challenged. Is it easy enough to link Garmin Connect from the basic Garmin Centre that I suspect a lot of us use?

Excellent idea. Knowing Woddle this will turn into a competition the 1000 race thread anyone ? See who can log the most races before the end of the year.

Woddle disqualified from all of the above races for using an illegal feedback device during the races.

I'd find it useful if there were any west of Ireland races included.

Seriously though - good idea, don't have a Garmin so can't contribute, but would definitely find it useful for those smaller races where there isn't a published route.

ha ha. Actually that raises a good point, is this thread specifically for races run in Ireland or are overseas races welcome also ? I'm guessing popular marathons such as Berlin and Rotterdam would be welcomes !

Why not everything I noticed on a different thread today someone was looking for the race profile of the farmleigh 5k.
